To help you plan your next trip, we asked holidaymakers to rate towns and resorts they had visited in the past year.

They rated everything from the beaches and restaurants to whether the resort offered peace and quiet. Our table-topping towns offer excellent food and drink, breathtaking beaches, plus peace and quiet.

Our research

In March 2019, Which? members completed an online survey about Canary Islands they had visited for leisure purposes in the past year, and stayed in for at least one night. We reported on the experiences of 2,010 visitors. The resort score is based on a combination of overall satisfaction and the likelihood of recommending the town or resort. Only towns/resorts that were mentioned by at least 30 members are included.
